Context
Obey the King

1Who is as the wise man? and who knows the interpretation of a thing? a man's wisdom makes his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed. 2I counsel you to keep the king's commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God. 3Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he does whatever pleases him. 4Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say to him, What do you? 5Whoever keeps the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerns both time and judgment. 6Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great on him. 7For he knows not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be? 8There is no man that has power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither has he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it. 9All this have I seen, and applied my heart to every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man rules over another to his own hurt.
